#kumankoido teddy bears are handcrafted using individually selected unique fabrics that represent different world communities. They are symbolic of a special cultural exchange between the Western tradition of teddy bears with other world cultures.

Inspired by a trip to Mali in West Africa, the creator, Junichi Nakane, has been building a cadre of #kumanokoido teddy bears to raise funds for a fresh water project that benefits local communities in Mali.

"Kuma no ko" means "bear cub" and "ido" means "water well" in Junichi's native tongue, Japanese. The combination of those two words symbolizes his wish that these little bears will make friends that will link people here, in West Africa and throughout other parts of world.
